This Week in History


The May 10, 1906, the opening of King Street Station gave Seattleites a rail depot they could finally be proud of. Designed by the architects who built New York's Grand Central Station and paid for by the Northern Pacific Railroad, the new brick building was a far cry from the wooden depots used up until that time.

Less than a year after cofounding the Pacific Aero-Products Company, William Boeing renamed the enterprise for himself on May 9, 1917.
